    Hiya, I am really interested to see if we can answer this question, as I too suffer with withdrawal headaches... can anyone who has these at the moment, or can remember, tell me:

    - at what time after SSing do/did you suffer headaches?
    e.g. end of day 1 SSing, day 2 am etc?

    I have found that I consistently get them in the evening of day 1 (so have gone without food from the evening the night before, making it about 24 hours SSing), and they carry on thru to about end of day 2/morning day 3..

    Please all post your replies, i am v. interested to see if there's a trend...

    Mine started today at around 5ish (day 1), so went to bed for a snooze. Feel groggy but better now.
    Not looking forward to tomorrow though.
    What pain killers can we take on CD? I normally take ibuprofen or solpadol but you ned to have food with those.

    I get them on-and-off for the first week. I guess because I'm prone to headaches and migranes anyway I expect it to be bad. For the first week I keep lots of paracetamol/ibuprofen handy!! x

    When I first started got headache on day 3 with slighty foggy head on day 4 which passed real quick. now notice that should I go out of ketosis cos meal out or something, I find I then get headache within 24 hrs. so think has a lot to do with how quickj you use up your carb stores as said before.:D

    I was lucky and only had very mild headaches on day 6 pm in the 1st week. However I did cut out carbs for 1 1/2 weeks before I started cd.

    However on week 3 I then had a very bad migraine which wiped me out for 2 days. As I occassionly suffer from them I dont know if the diet started this one or not.

    Since then I have never felt better.

    I didn't get any headaches but I cut down on carbs before starting the diet.I did however end up with gastritis after taking ibuprofen whilst on sole source so I would suggest that anyone who does get the headaches avoids nurofen etc
